It seems a US hosting company feels its ok to censor an artist because they havent registered their work in the UShttp://torrentfreak.com/record-label-infringes-own-copyright-site-pulled-081019/
The website of a record label which offers completely free music downloads has been taken down by its host for copyright infringement, even though it only offers its own music.
Quote Unquote Records is an Internet based record label, run by Bomb the Music Industry! and ‘The Arrogant Sons of Bitches’ frontman Jeff Rosenstock. A forward looking outfit, all artists on the label give their music away for free on the label’s website. Well, they would, if the webhost hadn’t have taken down the site for alleged copyright infringement
As we can all see its pretty plain that the web hosting company has overstepped the mark and will be liable for serious damages, this case however reflect the growing concern of many that the overbroad copyright laws are now hurting artists themselves, something congress and other bodies dealing with such matters should be informed and take note of, I wonder who made the original copyright infringement claim as after all an organisation called "Bomb THe Music Industry" may well have a few enemies in the music mafia's camp.
